The Youth Advisory Boards (YABs) are bodies of young people and adult professionals across the 7 districts of Norfolk who come together to make positive change for young people and the communities they live in. Through a youth led process, the YABs assess the need and then take action through campaigning, lobbying, advocacy and commissioning services. The YABs’ ambition is to influence all services design, delivery and policies to make them what young people want and need and to improve outcomes for all young people and their futures.
YABs are your opportunity to have a say in the decisions affecting young people in your area. If you care about for example, lack of activities and opportunities, public transport or mental health services, get in touch with the YAB people below. Maybe there is something else you care passionately about and want to change? Get in touch!

YAGs focus on specific activities and issues that relate to the priorities raised by the YABs. To get involved in a YAG in your area, contact the MAP youth worker named above.
